Jared Leto has so far remained mum about his portrayal of the Joker in “Suicide Squad.” Aside from set photos showing the actor in character makeup and costume, details about the film’s take on the villain have remained scarce. However, fellow cast Adam Beach recently teased what fans should expect to see from Leto’s performance as the Joker.

E Online caught up with Adam Beach on the red carpet premiere of his new film, “Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser,” where he talked about “Suicide Squad.” He also shared some details about Jared Leto’s version as the Joker in the film.

"He encompasses this beautiful man and he shows it in, 'Hello, how are you?' but in an instant he goes to psychotic behavior where you're in fear," Beach said. "But you love him because he has both of those genuine sides," he added.

Adam Beach also recalled seeing Jared Leto’s video message for the casts where he was dressed as DC’s Clown Prince of Crime. Beach, who is rumoured to play as Slipknot in “Suicide Squad,” said Leto’s characterisation of the Joker in the video “blew our minds away.”

Jared Leto also previously described his character in “Suicide Squad” as a “beautiful disaster.” In an interview with Billboard magazine, the 30 Seconds to Mars frontman described playing the Joker as an “opportunity to take on this nearly Shakespearean character.” The actor didn’t reveal specific details about his portrayal of the villain but admitted that he has to gain weight for his role.

According to Screenrant, photos from the set of “Suicide Squad” have proved that Jared Leto’s version of the Joker will be unlike the character’s predecessors. His take on DC’s Clown Prince of Crime will reportedly be more deranged and malevolent. The site further claimed that Jared will likely frequently reveal the Joker’s inner madness in the film.

Additionally, his costume and makeup also differs from the late Heath Ledger’s portrayal of the Joker in “The Dark Knight.” Instead of the smudged green makeup and scarred skin, Jared Leto’s version of the villain in “Suicide Squad” is rather dapper-looking. Set photos show the actor looking clean-cut with his green hair slicked back and looking refined in designer suits.
